Welcome!

Our monthly events are open to the public to women over 18. To find out what to expect, click here. For event dates, click here. There will be a raffle at the end of ritual, so bring a few dollars to contribute. No obligations, and all proceeds go to the church.

The purpose of this blog is to display past rituals, and show what to expect when attending our circles. Often we get caught up in planning fun rituals, and we get behind on posting photos. Your patience is appreciated.

Spring Equinox Essay

   Posted by: earthkat   in essay, peace, spring

by Aurora Star Light Bringer

As the wheel of the year turns once more, we find ourselves waking up to the Spring Equinox with fresh eyes, looking and finding the return of the light displayed not just in the sky but in everything it touches. The birdsong returns, the morning is brighter and the first flowers of spring look to the light with their yellow hearts wide open, reflecting back the sun. This is a time for us to rejoice with open hearts as the miracle of rebirth is displayed all around us.

Ostara marks a time of balance, a time of push and a pull. We shed coats and gloves yet in the just-warm air we can taste the memory of snow. We spring clean the indoors, but crave time outside. Light and dark find themselves equal partners in the dance, and the rustling of the winds whispers “peace”. It is in peace that we find the sacrament of the Spring Equinox.
